Hi all, I tried to send a big file using outlook 2003 67Mbytes (didnt think about it stupidly) however I cannot delete it because I keep getting a message saying outlook has started to send it....although it never gets sent. Any ideas how to overcome this problem. thanks

Try File > Work Offline. Then you should be able to delete it.

You may need to exit Outlook then restart it - if it is working offline it shouldn't try to send the message when it restarts.

Many thanks VoG managed to open it and delete all of the attachments and then delete the email..
